The current issue of Impact Magazine, a sports and fitness bimonthly published in Alberta, features a story about my running of the Sahara Marathon – 10km of it, anyway – while visiting the Saharawi refugee camps in Algeria in 2008. The story, titled “Sand Blast,” is a tiny excerpt from the first chapter of my upcoming walls book. It also represents the first and likely the last time any magazine will publish a story about me doing something athletic.
(The issue also includes a workout section featuring a personal trainer who is an old high school mate of mine, making the magazine the first time two members of St. Francis’ Class of ’91 appeared in the same publication since the yearbook.)
